You can achieve DevOps success by approaching it in a systematic fashion with a standard playbook and a powerful Automation platform. Your platform needs to have all the capabilities discussed in the section above to help you achieve the DevOps nirvana of Zero Touch Automation for all applications in your organization.
You need to decide whether it makes sense for you to build or buy this platform. Companies who have successfully implemented DevOps, like Netflix, Amazon and Facebook, have built the automation platform in-house over several years with large teams and millions of dollars of investment. Even if you don’t need the scale they do, you will still need to invest time and money into hiring a DevOps team and building all this yourself.
